When I run some chrome app such as...

google-chrome -app=chrome-extension://kjebfhglflhjjjiceimfkgicifkhjlnm/index.html always starts two windows, one in app mode, and another in the usual window.

I'd like the application to only start in app mode. What is the (or is there a) command line option to accomplish this?

There is an -app-id argument for starting up with extensions.

google-chrome -app-id=kjebfhglflhjjjiceimfkgicifkhjlnm

Should do the trick.
